Summary

For Magnesium alloys there are more fields as transport, communications or batteries. One is the use as bioresorbable implant in bone surgery. This saline area has high demands concerning corrosion resistance and is therefore used as main target for alloy development with the leading aspect of corrosion but regarding mechanical properties. A step-by-step building of alloy systems leads to an enhancement of the corrosion resistance by factors. These alloys are composed using common and newly defined principles of corrosion resisting alloying and processing parameters as extruding and heat treatment which aim for the enhancement of corrosion resistance. The final step is the validation of corrosive and mechanical characteristics of Fluorine-alloyed LAE-alloys in comparison to standard alloys as well in laboratory testing as in-vivo-implant in genuine pig [1].
